Although caregiving provides opportunities for adult children and elderly parents to grow closer, the positive psychological outcomes for both are often overshadowed by the demands of too little time to serve the needs of everyone—including the caretaker herself.

Thus, for migrant lone mothers a double imperative seems to apply: they can either work full time if the income from work is sufficient to pay for external (expensive) care and sustain the household’s costs, or they can live on social assistance if their prospects of finding gainful employment are gloomy.

  • My Nana has Alzheimer’s and it’s getting worse, she can’t remember our names, gets us confused, confuses time and good goodness she repeats and repeats over and over and over. In addition to that she’s complaining about everything as she is repeating, drives me crazy but I remain respectful and just go with it. If I say well no it was this not that, she then will start yelling at me and I am very sick of it! She has changed so much I don’t even know her anymore (tears) I tell myself everyday she can’t help it, it helps for most of the year. Yesterday I finally asked her why does it always have to be a battle with you, always the back n forth? I never speak to her like that I just could not take it anymore, I feel terrible especially since I slammed the door as I left her home. I never speak to her like that and in all the years with my grandmother I have never slammed a door at her home. I just wanna cry today.

  • I have never considered myself to be a victim….but I am am A VICTIM. pretty close to suicidal….talk to my therapist regularly.

  • The scope of my question is so narrow, it might qualify as tangential. Regarding constipation and poor dentition, since I puree my dad’s food in a blender, does it still have all the fiber? If I blenderize vegetables, for example, does he get the benefit of the fiber?

  • My Dad was diagnosed with late stage Alzheimer’s disease last November, and was just places in hospice care as of yesterday. The Memory Care facility where he’s staying says they’re saddened by how quickly the disease process has been progressing. It’s been particularly hard during the pandemic lockdowns. Thank you for this video! It helps me understand what my Dad has been going through, and what to expect as the hospice process begins. It’s an extremely heartbreaking disease.

  • It’s important to know about Delirium, as well. Each episode of Delirium
    can cause the Dementia to progress. Research how to prevent UTIs by using multi-pronged ‘best practice’ care.

  • Yes! Caregiving has made me a better person. I’m the sandwich generation, caring for both a small child and an aging parent. This role has made me step back and appreciate every single little moment of joy. And oftentimes I have to work hard to create these moments, but they are worth it. My daughter and I created the Give Back project where we document a monthly service project to help others in similar situations. This month, we are writing thank you letters. I’m thanking my hospice team, my daughter is thanking her grandmother. Next month, we will collect Baby Dolls and Blankets and deliver them to dementia patients to give them comfort. Anyone interested in donating should visit my channel!

  • A particularly beautiful music video about dementia from the incredible Irish artist, Laura Mulcahy. Really worth looking and listening.

  • My mother got to age 80 before dementia actually set in but it progressed quickly. for months we battled w her we thought she was going insane. we couldtn even control her. doctors couldnt either then we discovered thru a doctor a med called Citalopram. omg it was like turning off a faucet and so far so good. we have had to increase the dosage but it flattened her out and didnt change her persona and we are thrilled. its not expensive either and worksgreat.i understand it works by clearing the sticky substance that builds up in the brain w elder ly ppl so they can think straight. yea.. for us caregivers taking care of mom forever..

  • Thank you, Dr. Tan. Lots of helpful information here. My wife has mid-stage FTD so I need to be mentally prepared for what’s to come.

  • Garlic may doas much for your brain as it can do for your body by helping to protect you from age-related diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and dementia…. In addition, garlic has been found to improve many brain functions, such as memory, learning and mood. See Pubmed!!!!!!!!!!

    Also, The latest studies on turmeric show that curcumin can cross the blood-brain barrier and has the potential to help clear these plaques. Again, see PUBMED!!!!!

    Also, based on results in labtests, [6]-gingerol, [8]-gingerol and [6]-shogaol were found to be able to penetrate the BBB via passive diffusion, suggesting them to contribute to the positive effects of ginger extracts in the central nervous system.

    Lets get practical. Do this: Take a 3cm piece of aged spicy ginger root. blend it together in your favourite smoothy. Drink it immediately. Analize how you feel in your brain.

    Now, take that same 3cm piece of ginger root and slowely chew it up. keep the juice in you mouth for as long as possible allowing the ginger chemicals to be absorped sublingually into your blood stream. These chemicals will reach your brain withing a minute! If you can stand the spicyness, you’ll feel an incredible sensation in your brain. Now this is the power of Sublingual Absorption! The power of Natural Antifungals and phytochemicals crossing the BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER.

    You’re welcome!

  • Dimentia has completely took my grandma to an insane state and to the point where she is such a nuisance she wakes up in the middle of the night screaming about nonsense and I cannot sleep, she treats my mom like a personal servant and takes everything to the extreme she has peed 2 times on our carpets then denied it I just want her to pass quickly and so I can take the rest of my teenagehood back

  • I wouldn’t wish this most horrific disease on Satan himself…my Mom has vascular dementia…truly horrific!! When he talks about latter stage dementia..my Mom does all that, just us kids take care of her..thank God for internet..still doesn’t make it easier to deal with but at least gives me an understanding of what is happening…she refuses all meds so…Blessings to all who are going thru this including the patient!!

  • This is not helpful Dr., you’re lecturing. Those who are living with this person know a lot but knowing is not enough. We need ways to deal with this intractable, horrifying disease.

  • Very helpful. My 57 year old wife has both MS and advanced dementia, exhibiting many of the symptoms outlined in the presentation. I was already planning to meet her neuro this week to discuss palliative care. Steve Jones (Manchester, England)
